Police: Suspect dead; had slain cop's gun

Recommended Posts



Seattle, Washington (CNN) -- The suspect in Sunday's fatal shooting of four police officers was shot and killed early Tuesday in south Seattle after he challenged an officer who approached him, authorities said.


Maurice Clemmons was carrying a weapon taken from one of the dead officers and had suffered a bullet wound to his abdomen in Sunday's shooting, Pierce County Sheriff's Department spokesman Ed Troyer said at an early morning news conference.


Clemmons was killed around 2:45 a.m. by a seven-year veteran of the Seattle police force who had noticed a parked stolen car that was unoccupied but running, said Jim Pugil, an assistant Seattle police chief.


The officer approached Clemmons outside the car and asked him to show his hands, but the suspect refused and started to run around the car, Pugil said.


The police officer, who recognized Clemmons from photographs, then shot and killed him, the assistant chief said.


The officer, who was not identified, was not injured.

Authorities said they regretted the shooting death but are glad the two-day ordeal is over.


"Right now, it's just a feeling of relief," Pugil said. "Another tragic time has come upon us, and we're just happy that it's over."




Looks like he got what he deserved.

There's no way they were arresting this guy, glad he's dead


He took the easy way out. they should have beaten him to death and then put one in the temple. He took 4 people's lives becuase he's a waste of life.
